No Makeup November Once Again

Hello, my readers and haters,

Today is my second day of NMN and this year I decided to do it for myself.  No more filters on Snapchat or Instagram filters. It takes me about an hour and a half to get ready, and I’ve been relying on makeup to feel confident and pretty without realizing I’m hiding behind it again. Thankfully,  I have this month to work on how I feel on the inside rather than the outside.

I’ve been having trouble with losing weight because of a particular health condition I have, and it’s been mentality straining. I am 23 years old now, and I feel the pressure of keeping weight off and face flawless is even more overwhelming. There is no secret that I suffer from Body Dysmorphia. Some weeks are easy, but sometimes it’s hard for me to leave my house because of how bloated/fat I think I am.  Despite being invited to a social outing, I won’t go if I don’t look good.

I’ve come to learn it’s not how you look, its how you feel! I haven’t been feeling “good” or my “best” for a bit; however, I’m happy to place aside the superficiality of social pressures and concentrate on my mind, body, and soul. Hopefully, I won’t get caught in these pressures after this month. I’m excited to share this experience with you guys and hope it can inspire you to check in with yourself.



The second day of NMN… Absolutely no filter
